Here’s what Congressman Goodlatte posted on Facebook after House Speaker Paul Ryan pulled the American Health Care Act (the GOP replacement for the Affordable Care Act) from the floor because of a lack of Republican support.
Goodlatte said he intended to vote for the truly awful legislation that would have stripped tens of millions of Americans of their health insurance and driven up premiums for millions more while providing a huge tax break to the very rich. Now he won’t get a chance.
Despite this disaster for President Trump and Congressional Republicans, Goodlatte remains committed to killing the ACA instead of working to make it stronger and better. We need to be vigilant.
